PFPR Communications has been appointed by Gordon Murray Design Ltd to support the company at a pivotal point in its development.

PFPR will provide a range of communications and event services to Professor Gordon Murray and his team as they celebrate a number of key milestones in 2017 and prepare to move to a brand-new facility in Dunsfold, Surrey. The new site will be used as the company’s automotive centre, as well as for its design, development and production operations.

PFPR has worked alongside Gordon Murray and his team during the last three years on Project OX with the Global Vehicle Trust, developing a unique vehicle for third-world markets.

2017 marks several significant anniversaries for Gordon Murray, notably his 50th year in vehicle engineering and design, the 10th year of operation for Gordon Murray Design, 25 years since the McLaren F1 road car entered production, and the 10thanniversary of the company’s innovative and disruptive automotive manufacturing technology, trademarked iStream®.

These will all be celebrated later this year with a unique exhibition that will gather – for the first and possibly only time in one location – more than 40 iconic and historically significant race and road cars from Gordon Murray’s 50-year career.

The Gordon Murray Design Ltd account will be led by PFPR Associate Director, Jon Visscher, and Senior Account Manager, Ed Callow.
